WORKWEAR FOR PAINTERS: SLIM FIT AND WHITE!
Tricorp workwear is suitable for every professional and can therefore be found in various industries. Our workwear is particularly popular with painters. This has to do with the fact that we are increasingly adapting our articles to the work that the wearer performs. Our new painters’ trousers have, for example, been designed in collaboration with a group of professional painters.
WHAT CONDITIONS MUST A PAINTER’S WORKWEAR SATISFY?
A painter's workwear doesn't just consist of one outfit. A painter may have to spend the day working in the burning sun, and then the next day find himself in an ice-cold factory hall. A painter must therefore be prepared for any situation. And each situation imposes different requirements on workwear. We have put together the ideal wardrobe for you!
ADJUSTING WORKWEAR TO TEMPERATURE
In most cases, a cotton T-shirt or polo in combination with sturdy work trousers or shorts is sufficient. If the ambient temperature changes, different workwear is often the solution. Because painters often work in different environments and temperatures (outside, inside, summer, winter), it is important that this is taken into account when purchasing workwear. More layers keep out the cold and wind. For working in the sun there are special shirts with UV-block which also have a breathable and cooling effect.
It's important that a painter's clothing isn't too loose. Painters often work on ladders or scaffolding with protruding elements. If your clothes are too loose, it can lead to dangerous situations. Therefore we advise painters to opt for slim fit workwear.
WORKWEAR FOR PAINTERS: WHY CHOOSE WHITE?
Although painters’ clothing is available in all kinds of colours, preference is often given to white workwear. There are several reasons for this. First, painters in the past would wore white work clothes, so that the colour of the clothes did not influence the paint during mixing. Wearing red work clothes, for example, gave the paint a pink haze. Although most paints today are mixed automatically, a painter may still sometimes have to mix his own paints. Second, the sunlight reflected from your workwear can affect the colour of your surroundings. For example, if you wear orange overalls, an orange glow will appear on the walls or ceiling. That's rather annoying when you're white-washing the wall! Third, painters often work with hazardous substances, such as thinner. It is useful to be able to see immediately when such substances have spilt on your clothing.
